Survey and Extension of the Pit and Duct System
To Allow for Cat5 Network Cabling for the CHP systems and the Extension of the Fire Alarm Network
The Royal United Hospital, Bath is a 650 bed district general hospital serving a population of 500,000. It is based on a 53 acre site in the Combe Park area of Bath. The Estate is made up of 64 separate blocks that range in age from the 1700?s up to the present date.
As part of our commitment of continual upgrades of our systems, we are installing combined heating and power units to four buildings. Data links between these building will be required in order for them to report back to a central point; therefore, data cabling will need to run between buildings. In addition to this work, we need to divert the existing Fire Alarm Network cabling. The buildings that need to be networked are Bernard Island House, Cheltenham House, Gloucester House and Leamington House onto existing schemes.
The works will involve a survey of the current pit and duct system local to the area and extending the pit and duct where necessary to new locations.
Before any excavations works are carried out the areas must be fully surveyed with a CAT & GENNY so that permits to work can be issued.
Where the cables rise from the duct system new containment will then run along the surface of each of the building to the relevant plantrooms.
Once a suitable route has been established the existing Fire Alarm Network and Cat5 Network cabling will be re-routed so that the additional buildings can be brought onto the system.
